Alcoholic Hepatitis Vomiting
- Start with small sips of clear liquids to allow the intestinal tract to rest. Use 1 to 3 tablespoons every 1 to 5 minutes. Gradually increase oral intake as tolerated.
- Clear liquids include anything you can see through, such as:
- Dilute fruit juice
- Dilute tea
- Liquid Jell-O
- If nausea or vomiting continues, consider taking a nonprescription medicine, such as:
- Slowly advance the diet with small, frequent meals. Begin by snacking on starchy or bland foods such as crackers. Gradually work up to other foods.
